November 9 - Join The Parrot Club on Tuesday, November 9, at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT for a special talk by Steve Baldwin, founder of Brooklyn Parrots, home of the wild Quaker Parrots! Steve is known to many in the club as the founder and leader of the Brooklyn wild parrot tours, entertaining walks through Brooklyn, NY to see and enjoy the Quaker (also known as monk) parrots (Myiopsitta monachus). Steve is a life-long Brooklynite who discovered that there were parrots living in his backyard in his 50s. He set out to find the birds himself and starting running free tours around 15 years ago or so. While currently suspended, hopefully someday he’ll be able to resume them! I went on one years ago and it was a great deal of fun.

Steve has even written an e-book called The Brooklyn Parrots FAQ, available on Amazon for a nominal price at Quaker parrots are the only parrots that build free-standing nests almost anymore, including trees, power transmission poles, steeples, and other human-made structures. Unfortunately this has led to conflict over the years and heated debates about their future in the urban environment. Frequently seen locations in Brooklyn include Brooklyn College, Green-Wood Cemetery, and various locations in South Brooklyn.
